Windows 8 Development: More Kinect and Windows 8 integration news

February 24, 2011

One of my faves is here..

Xbox LIVE File System for Xbox Kinect: designed and shipped a distributed storage system built on Windows Azure for customer data collection world-wide, resulting in improved acoustic models and skeletal tracking algorithms for Kinect and Windows 8 speech recognition.

It will be interesting to see just how far this rabbit hole will go with the integration of Windows 8 and the Kinect.

The possibilities are endless though and with the low price point of the Kinect, Microsoft have a good opportunity to change the game.

Check out some of the posts on this blog talking about Windows 8 and the Kinect.
